GCC Office Guangzhou | 2PM -4:30PM

Dezan Shira & Associates, in partnership with the German Chamber of Commerce in Guangzhou, and The British Chamber of Commerce in Guangdong, is pleased to invite you to join the 2019 HR Roundtable Discussion, Ideas, and Best Practices on March 29 at the GCC office Guangzhou.

Hear from our very own HR expert, Cherry Wu, Manager on the HR & Payroll Services team. Cherry will give a keynote speech on staying up-to-date with HR trends, with excellent case studies from top foreign-invested companies. The roundtable will include a general introduction and analysis which will keep companies, especially foreign invested, away from HR related risks.

HR Compliance Audit

Like a finance audit, an HR audit is an independent and objective evaluation of the current state of an organization's HR policies, practices, documentation, and systems. An HR audit can alert a company about hidden HR-related problems and errors, as well as possible compliance issues against a backdrop of China's ever-evolving rules and regulations. This can allow an organization to establish best practices, thereby protecting it against possible operational and legal risk.

In this session, we will talk about:

  1. Why doing HR compliance audit is necessary? (case study included)
  2. How do an HR compliance audit? What kind of things do we need to audit? (contract, handbook, etc.)
  3. Which law or regulation do we need to rely on when facing audit problems?
  4. How to deal with audit problems (in detail)

Risk in the Hiring Process

Lots of companies used to take it for granted that the recruitment procedure is easy to implement and it will contain no legal risks, as it is just a simple 'matching game' to choose the right candidates. However, many common practices during the recruitment process are actually not appropriate or compliant with local labor laws. For example, do you include any discriminatory information in your job ads? Do you ask unsuitable questions during the interview process? Do you do anything sensitive or disputed during the offer process? Any inappropriate actions during the recruitment procedure will bring the company risks.

In this session, we will talk about:

  1. What are the possible risks during the recruitment procedure?
  2. How to avoid and prevent such risks
